I am also having the problem that in my application, sending/receiving at
20Hz over a localhost/loopback connection, sometimes stalls for exactly
5000ms. This happens mostly on slower (e.g. Athlon X2 4400+) than on faster
(e.g. i7-930) machines.

Did this help finding the source of the problem?
As explained here (http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/Loopback),
Wireshark/WinPcap will not be able to capture traffic over the loopback
device. As suggested, I used RawCap (http://www.netresec.com/?page=RawCap)
I filter the data using "tcp.port == 1234" to not get sidetracked by other
I uploaded a screenshot here: http://i.imgur.com/36U62.jpg
I uploaded the whole dumpfile here:
The interesting part is probably this:
> 85030 16.690429 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 TCP 1500 [TCP segment of a reassembled
> 85041 21.689453 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 TCP 808 [TCP Previous segment lost]
> [TCP segment of a reassembled PDU]
You can clearly see the ~5000ms pause between those two events.
Does anyone have further insight in the reason why it is exactly 5000ms, and
how to maybe fix or work around it?
